McManus writes, “As a woman of color and an aspiring head myself, this research was intrinsically personal and professionally humbling.” To read the full article, visit: https://www.nais.org/magazine/independent-school/fall-2020/women-of-color-in-headships-uncovering-experiences-of-discrimination-and-microaggressions/
